After 10 days on MSC Poesia we had to say goodbye to our honeymoon. We saw the MSC POESIA leaving from the same port that we happily got on board 10 days ago, now it will fulfill the dreams of other passengers.
Certainly gone for us, but it will never be forgotten. Every year for our anniversary we will remember this vacation that marked a moment in our lives. We will remember that on MSC POESIA we started a life committed to each other.
We got to our hotel just in time, after a whole day exploring Genoa. From our window we say goodbye and thank God for a great honeymoon. Gone…But Never Forgotten.
Until then, 🙂
This post is a continuation of my last post “Lisbon From Another Angle“
I found the little video that I took of the sea-gulls having fun around the cruise while we were leaving the coast of Lisbon. I thought of sharing it with you, because I mention the “air show” on my last post. I know that you can see sea-gulls in every coast and lately you can even found them in land. But there are interesting to me, I like to observe them. They are very intelligent birds, very opportunist too. Anyways this was quite a show that did not happened in any other port that we visited on this cruise trip. So here it is…
I am in love with Portugal! My husband think it is because it was my first experience in Europe. Maybe… The only thing I know is that I want to go again and again. Well next time I go I want to explore the south coast, traveling on car from Lisbon to Algarve.
We had the chance to visit Lisbon briefly this time (our 2nd time), only for a day. But we were able to see Lisbon particularly from another angle. Places that last year we saw with details, that we visited personally like the Monument Of the Discoveries, the Lisbon Cathedral, Sao Jorge Castle, the Belem Tower and other things, this time we admire them from another angle, from the water side.
We left Lisbon in the afternoon. We went to the top deck of our cruise, along with everybody else to wave goodbye to the vibrant old city. While our ship sail slowly through the Rio Tejo (Tagus River)toward the ocean, seagulls display an airshow for us. They flown so close to us, that you can even see into their eyes.
A very different view was seeing the 25 Abril Bridge form under…
Check the video and see with me the 25 Abril Bridge from another angle!! Excuse the wind noise… I tried to reduce the sound or at least I thought I did.
Have you ever had the chance before to compare the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea?
This was my first trip on the Mediterranean and every time I went up to the deck on our cruise, the ocean was choppy, dark blue with white foam everywhere you look. The winds were so strong that it felt like a small hurricane was on board. At night almost anybody was visiting the 13th and 14th floor. It was empty and the fence-rail around the top floors (13th and 14th floor) was covered by white dust (salt). The water mist was able to rich so high up because of the intense winds. One night Jorge and me went up stairs to the top floors after dinner. I had a black jacket/sweater on. After spending some time trying to not be blown away by the wind, I noticed that the white dust was changing my sweater’s color. Then we decided to better walk in the inside of the cruise.
This was very interesting to me, the cruises that I took before through the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean, the ocean looks like a purple blue and the waves are bigger and soft at the same time, or basically calm comparing to the mediterranean. The winds were not that intense.
Every time we were getting closer to a port the waters started to smooth down a litter bit for a more calm “look”.
Have you traveled on the Pacific Ocean or any other ocean? I would love to know how different is cruising in other oceans and seas.
